Client Story

Successful settlement package negotiated thanks to Employment and Immigration Associate’s advice

4th March 2024

HCR Law

When Nicola’s employers told her that her employment would terminate after ten years of dedicated service, she was understandably upset and wanted to find out where she stood legally. Seeking guidance and empathy, she turned to Heidi Cooper, Associate in the Employment and Immigration team.

It was a time-sensitive situation – Heidi helped Nicola remotely the same day she was contacted, explaining her employment rights as well as her legal rights. She also explained the options available to Nicola and the effects of choosing each of these options. Ultimately, a favourable settlement package was negotiated.

The success in Nicola’s case led her to provide this testimonial for Heidi:

“I was in shock and extremely stressed and upset given the out-of-the-blue bombshell that had been dropped on me by my employer of ten years. Heidi managed to calm me down and put me at ease with her kind words and obvious knowledge of the legal position; she was friendly, knowledgeable and was able to explain my options in a clear way.

Due to distance and time constraints, we still managed to compliantly cover standard AML and identification as well as signing the final document without me having to make a trip into Hereford which I was grateful for.

If you ever need an employment law specialist, I would absolutely recommend contacting Heidi for a discussion – you will be in safe hands.”
